The issue of weight can be a sensitive one for families. You may have questions about what it really means to be overweight, and how it will impact the rest of your child’s health for years to come. We can provide answers to help your family make changes for a healthy life.

We know that many factors contribute to obesity. Our biology, diet, physical activity levels and surroundings all work in concert for or against our health. On this website, we offer online materials based on scientific evidence that help you make specific, realistic changes every day that will help your family have a healthier tomorrow.

Discover new recipes and a shopping list for healthful snacks and meals, tips on how to increase exercise and physical activity, and educational resources for families, health providers and community organizations to learn more about how to achieve optimal weight for life.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
